Founder Jan Van der Lande collaborated with Kevin Brynan, owner of now-closed gift shop Mxyplyzyk, in creating the first store for the design company, which has been churning out must-have utilitarian gadgets for the past 20 years. NYC designer Jan Habraken and his team at FormNation (formnation.com) created the Peg-Board walls displaying goods ($2–$500) from Kikkerland and local brands such as Confetti System and Tattly. Look for Chris Collicott calendar boxes ($20) and Casey Schneider glass stones ($13) that water your plants over the course of three to four days, as well as Kikkerland rechargeable lanterns ($35) and fish-shaped flasks ($30).
